Question about Airlink (AWLH4130) 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

No WEP capabilities...

For some reason, my AWLH4130 will connect to networks which have no WEP just fine, but if I try to connect to any network secured with WEP, it can't connect, and doesn't give me any reason why. I'm sure all the configuration is correct, because I have a laptop connected to the network. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    I am in the same situation as some of the other comments I have seen. I am able to locate and input the encryption key to my local wireless network. It shows that it is connecting to the network but in the end it never truly does connect. I erase the profile and try it again with the airlink radio as well as the windows wireless and it is the same thing. Nothing happens. Just give it the priority message but wont connect. Any solutions?

WEP encryption is not very safe and will be less in use in the future. Anyway, you have to determine, if WEP 64 bit or WEP 128 bit is used (26 digits), mostly it is set to 128 bit.
If the connection fails, try to input the key with WZC (Windows Zero Configuration) instead via the interface-software from the manufacturer. If the service WZC is started (important!), you have a tab in the properties of the adapter to make the configuration with conf.less win connection, you only have to put in the right key.

NetGear MA111 802.11b Wireless Adapter is installed and my wireless network signal is strong but after entering the WEP password to connect it won't connect to my network the tool tray pc symbol just says...

This means, that either the password is incorrect after all, or the router/access point to which you are trying to connect has some filtering enabled for security reasons - usually it's MAC address filtering, to allow only specified network adapters (hence - computers) to connect.
You have to contact the person that set up the router/access point.

My desktop won't connect wireless to the internet after installing a dlink dwl-510 wireless card, its says the installation was successful but when i try to connect to my network by puting the network key...

First make sure your modem is wireless, if it is not, you need to purchase a wireless router that connects to your modem. If that is all in place and you still have no connection, you may have to unplug modem and or wireless router for 30 second then replug back in, wait a few minutes, then try to get on line, if that does not work, go to the desktop, go to start, then to run command, punch in cmd, then enter, a black screen should appear, type in ping then a space then your ip address, like mine is if you don't know it call who you have for internet service, ask them for it, that said press enter, you should receive a message saying 4 packets sent 4 packets received 0 loss, this now means your connection is good, and you should be able to go online, also within windows is a network troubleshooter, you can go there: start:control panel: network settings.also one other big reason it could be also is that your modem is secure, and has a wep key, you need that to make a connection, the wep key is printed under your modem, write it down. Then go to internet explorer like you are going online, now look on the task bar all the way to the right, right click the little computer scrren go to open network connections, strat a new connection, follow the prompts, and when asked put your wep key in.

I have installed wbr-1310 to main puter but cannot install on lap

Make sure the wireless capabilities are turned on on your router.
On your computer scan for available networks and it should detect the router.
Once detected it will ask you for the Passkey/WEP/Secutity Key.
You should have a note of this when you originally set up your wireless connection.
If not then your computer network set up wizard may 'kick in' and just follow the instruction.
Remember to keep a note of your PASSKey/WEP as you will require it in future

Good luck

Connects to Access Point but the internet cannot be found

The main reason why you have this error message because your computer is not getting a valid IP address from teh wireless network, and the reason why its not getting a valid IP address is the wireless security or sometimes called WEP/WPA kay are not type in to the correct place, If you have a WEP enable on your wireless network you will have two option on the Linksys WLAN monitor where you can type in teh security key, you will see two boxes there when you try to connect to the secured network one says Passohrase and one says WEP key1 and if yuo have a wireless key that has a total of 10 or 26 key character you need to type that on the WEP key1 box leave the passphrase blank...But if it still didn't work you can contact this number for help 1-877-787-8749....

Can't add new PC to extant WEP 128 network

If your system is encrypted you will need to set it up in xp before you open the media centre as if i remember there is no option to enter a password for WEP. Just open the network card properties and select the TCP/IP line then properties ans select obtain ip address automatically. Then when network is detected enter the WEP password numbers.

Trouble connecting to 16bit WEP network

On wireless networks, there are 2 stages of connecting. The first is associating with the Access Point. The seconds is properly authenticating to the Access Point. It sounds like the first stage is happening fine. The seconds stage (encryption) is where it sounds you are having the problem. With out successful authentication in the 2nd stage, you will not be connected to the rest of the network. The reason why you cannot get out to the Internet is probably because your laptop never received an IP address via DHCP. This can be confirmed by opening a command prompt (start -> run -> Type "cmd" (No Quotes) -> Hit OK) and executing the following command: ipconfig /all You should have a 192.168.x.x IP address. If you have an address in the 169.254.x.x or range, then your laptop did not receive and IP address and will not get out to the Internet. The cause for you not getting an IP address is most likey due to the encryption keys not EXACTLY matching. This often happens when using different vendors products, as their implementations are not always EXACTLY the same. From what you mentioned above, 16 bit WEP key does not sound like a standard length. They are typically 10 or 26 bit. What I would recommend is that you set your wireless clients and wireless router to the EXACT same settings. When doing this, do not use pass-phrases or ascii characters, as different vendors may produce different keys, and this may be causing your problem. What you want to use is a 10 or 26 character string of the digits 0-9 and the letters a-f. This is known as a hexidecimal string. This is the one sure way you will have exact matches on both sides. One example of a 26-bit WEP key would be the following: 8005532447badfad8005532447 Note: The letters can be uppercase or lowercase. Hexidecimal characters are case insensitive.
